Police have rubbished reports that scores of teenagers were taken to hospital after taking drugs at a concert in Belfast.

On Friday evening, rumours began circulating on social media that a "bad batch" of drugs had lead to "dozens" of young people being rushed to hospital from the Belsonic concert.

Police quickly took to Twitter to state that this is not the case.

"We have been made aware of various reports circulating on social media about tonight's Belsonic concert," PSNI South Belfast wrote.

"This is NOT the case. Three people have been transferred to hospital for medical treatment for minor injuries/effects of alcohol."
